A one of a kind high school academy on the South Coast is going to be featured Wednesday night on the acclaimed PBS television series “NOVA”.

The Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy in Goleta is part of a special on schools of the future. 

It's huge exposure for the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy, which included an invitation for the program's director, and one of its graduates to speak at the White House this week.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco gives us a look at this unique program which was also featured as part of an educational summit at the White House this week.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
